MGM Resorts to Furlough Entertainment Employees in August

Las Vegas has reopened, but with the pandemic still raging across the country, not everything is back to normal.

MGM Resorts has sent out a letter to employees informing them of possible layoffs in August. The letter notes that the live entertainment sector will not resume before August 31st. It has been shut down since March, when the coronavirus pandemic was first causing havoc around the country. No live entertainment means that many entertainment employees “will be separated from the company.”

The letter says that as it has been previously announced, any employee who isn’t called back to work on or before August 31st “will be separated from the company.” That includes “large majority of employees” in entertainment.

The letter explains that furloughed employees with MGM health plans will continue to receive benefits through August 31st, 2020. That’s not much consolation, especially considering that we are still in the middle of a pandemic. The company says that it will continue to provide grants for expenses like groceries and housing through November 29, 2020.
